This is easier than you might think. To easily “export� the songs from a playlist, simply do the following:

1. Open the playlist in iTunes;
2. Select all the songs in the playlist with “Edit—> Select Allâ€?;
3. Drag the songs out of iTunes onto the desktop (or directly to your hard disk/memory card in Windows Explorer);

That’s it!  A copy of your files is made where you drop them. Note that this won’t work for protected AAC files purchased from the iTunes Music Store; these files can only be transferred easily using iTunes itself, or workarounds that we discuss in our tutorial on backing up your iPod music library.
